The ride is sponsored by Boulder Community Hospital Foundation and the Justin Parker Neurological Institute, the non-profit arm of Boulder Neurological and Spine Associates; proceeds will go to neurological research and providing medical care to injured high school athletes. Athlete-driven spine care is a big portion of what we do, says Kathy Borgais, who represents the institute. Our physicians are very healthy and athletic; one is a triathlete. Theyre very focused on health and healthy living, so we wanted to offer a fundraising bike ride to kind of initiate the season.
The ride gets started at 6:30 a.m. at the Gerald Stazio Softball Fields, 2445 Stazio Drive in Boulder, and features 30-, 50-, 75- and 100-mile courses, all tended by way stations stocked with food and drink, plus a couple of mechanic stations provided by Bicycle Vil-lage in case your bike breaks down (there will also be paramedics close at hand in case you break down). It concludes with an expo from 1 to 3 p.m. at Stazio Fields, with food, raffles and a performance from the Deciders.
Registration is $60 to $70, depending on the course. To register or to get more information about routes and activities, visit www.bocoloco.org.
